across the world and how we compete in global economy, now that number has dropped down it's not 79% anymore. it's around 35% of our jobs in high school a diploma, which means we have a big skill scant. it's in the manufacturing jobs, john. you can't show up with a high get l degree and expect to a job in a manufacturing plant. you have to have some type of to do, to read, to write, basic math, to operate to machinery, the equipment, the things that you have. so as a nation, we're falling behind. industrialized nations, 14th in reading, 17th in science, 25th in math. 34 nations. we're a better nation than that. to compete and remain internationally globally competitive, we have to change and we haven system to address the needs of our employers. it up to you open guys, but before we do that, manziel y, is johnny going to win the heisman again? >> i don't have a clue. i played six-man football. >> you're an aggie, you're yeah, baby, yeah. >> i don't have an idea. he is fun to watch play. here's what i will project. i will make a prediction -- that i'm very confident in and that is th
-style enhancements for those not rich. >> but the bottom line is that when you have a slow economy like we had in the 70s, the rich very often get richer but the poor get poorer. that didn't happen during the reagan era, did it? >> no, it didn't. look, it's not just the obama administration's fault. it's the bush administration's fault. the cheap dollar policy creates financial bubbles. who can take advantage of financial bubble? the rich. the poor always have to sell out at the bottom. number one. number two, the regulatory creep that occurred under bush and has accelerated under obama has made it very difficult to expand in areas where you typically find high wage blue collar jobs, in transportation, energy extraction and so on. i hope rick will be pleased to hear that i'm not blaming this entirely on president obama. >> well, on the other hand, mike, president obama's solution to all this and they're saying it in europe, the imf is saying it, is to have this global wealth tax, to tax the rich more, to bring the rich down, that will help income disparity. what do you think of that plan? >> a
is helping to create a stronger economy and a fairer society. will the prime minister meet me and a delegation of young people from cornwall to see how we can further promote these very worthwhile schemes? >> i am delighted with the news about the number of apprenticeships in cornwall. the government have made a major financial commitment to funding apprenticeships. that is making a difference, but there is far further to go in tackling youth unemployment and worklessness among people between the ages of 16 and 24. i am always happy to meet with him, perhaps a suitable moment might be when i am in cornwall. >> house prices are going up at a time when real wages are going down. does the prime minister accept that when interest rates go up after the election, it will detonate a sub-prime debt crisis of his making? >> the greatest danger in terms of interest rates would be to have a government who believed in more borrowing, more spending, and more taxing. that is what would drive up interest rates, that is what would hit the cost of living and that is what every family in this c
, subsequent roads, transit and water investments helped fuel our economy and tie the nation together. more recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has secured here in washington, the gap in the highway trust fund has been growing and conditions of our roads, bridges and transit systems have been deteriorating. this puts america at a competitive disadvantage, complicates the movement of goods and people and contributes to congestion and pollution. at the same time, the needs grow, the resources are in significant decline. the gas tax has not been increased since t
difficult to forecast exactly one that is going to be. in part because the economy is -- it is a little bit more strong. as a result that extends the time in which the treasury -- atment can do things some point congress is going to have to do that. i suppose the earliest it could possibly be is february. it is much more likely that it is sometime in spring or the beginning of the summer. then you are going to get the debate over -- we should look at tax hikes, changes in entitlement. it is hard to see how they are going to get any agreement on those areas. particularly in election year. the house is expected to adjourn for the year on friday and the senate shortly after. a lot of high-profile legislation still hanging in the balance. it is the list of what is likely to make it through the 113th congress. i think the only thing that is likely to get through is the defense authorization act. will see what gets included. one thing we will be watching is to see whether any legislation sanctioning iran is added to that bill. the administration is doing everything it can to prevent congress from
the entire country. it will be good for our economy. >> but, as the unemployment rate is heading in the right direction, will this wage hike have jobs taking a hike? hi, everyone, this is "bulls and bears." let's get right to it. the bulls and bears. gary b. smith. tracy burns. john nas max ferris. along with bernard whitman. ll pushing the minimum to the max push out jobs just as they're coming back? >> yes, absolutely, this is the wrong thing to do in an economy that's showing some signeds of recovery. remember, they're targeting the wrong people. this is a great union and democratic slogan to say, look at the ceo, how much he's making. you can't raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour? take mcdonald's nor example. they will tell you, they don't set the wages for the local franchises. these are your moms and pops. these are your neighbors out there. they can't afford -- they don't have huge margins to raise the wages to $15 an hour. remember, if you want to help poverty this isn't the way to do it. the earned income tax credit does it. take this out of politics. take this out of unions. remem
blast. we begin tonight with inequality in the economy and the dangers to young americans. president obama says 10% of the population is now taking home half of the nation's income. he warns the growing canyon between rich and poor is destroying the economy, and threatening the american dream. president obama -- >> the top 20%, has about a two in three chance of staying at or near the top. a child born into the bottom 20% has a less than one in 20 shot at making i.t. to th -- making o the top. he's ten times modifier likely to stay where he is. >> president obama states statistics that shows the average american income is shrinking. the president asked the congress to raise the minimum to $7.10 an hour. encouraging government dependence. white house correspondent mike viqueria joins us with more. mike, why the speech and why now? >> it's a great question john. first of all the facts that the president and the statistics that the president cited are beyond dispute. there is a growing income disparity in the country. the top 1% has seen their incomes triple, the lower middle class has
to the latest news of the day. jobs and the economy, we have the details. patricia, good to see you. this is a much better than expected jobs report. >> it was tin deed much better. but the numbers were encouraging, and there was reason to be cautious. >> reporter: the economy shows signs of improvement. lowering the unemployment rate to 7%. there was a healthy bump in higher paying manufacturing and construction. the numbers indicate the economic recover is gaining strength. >> we've had 45 consecutive months. >> while encouraging, there is still a long way to go. >> the economy will have to create between 200,000 to 225,000 jobs per month for the next couple of years. >> reporter: that may be difficult to achieve. the recovery is still on shaky ground with small businesses seeing a slow down for the year. that's significant because those businesses create two-thirds of new jobs. particularly hard hit has been the retail sector. despite slashing prices and opening their doors thanksgiving day retailers posted disappointing sales in november. >> you have a vicious circle if ├║people
in this economy? >> it does. you can see the headline number was stronger than many of us had expected. even as far as mcquarry goes as well. a lot of that was an inventory buildup. that's really great for the third quarter. that puts in some head winds for the fourth quarter. mcquarry believes you could have fourth quarter gdp as low as .8%. much lower than consensus. so, i mean, it's good for third quarter. not so good for fourth quarter. that doesn't bode well going into the end of the year. >> sam stovall, we've now that three days, potentially four days of losses to start off the month. extremely rare at least in recent history. i think this is the first time since june 2011 we've seen such a stretch. is that the kind of information people should trade off, though, or is it just statistical noise? >> i think it's noise right now. really it's only four days. the thought is they're doing this in advance of tomorrow's employment data with the worry being that the fed will likely start their tapering program this month rather than wait until march. our expectation has been that they would d
. it will be good for our economy. it will be good for our families. [ applause ] number four, as i alluded to earlier, we still need targeted programs for the communities and workers that have been hit hardest by economic change in the great recession. these communities are no longer limited to the inner city. they're found in neighborhoods hammered by the housing crisis, manufacturing towns hit hard by years of plants packing up, land-locked rural areas where young folks oftentimes feel like they've got to leave just to find a job. they're communities that just aren't generating enough jobs anymore. so we put forward new plans to help these communities and their residents because we've watched cities like pittsburgh or my hometown of chicago revamp themselves. if we give more cities the tools to do it, not handouts but a hand up, cities like detroit can do it too. so in a few weeks, we'll announce the first of these promise zones, urban and rural communities where we'll support local efforts focused on a national goal. that is, a child's course in life should not be determined by the zip
in economy. jobless claims below 300,000, what is this, new strength in america? >> we're going to have to go, the fed said over and over again we're going to need to see three or four months of good economic figures. let me make it as simple as possible. the battle, the war next year, the wages fought on this floor and wall street is between two calms. those that think that qe is responsible for the rise in equity prices and those that think the economy is improving and justifies the rise in equity prices. they're going to battle it out in 2014 and the fed is stuck in the middle. we've got an exciting year ahead of us. stuart: in five seconds, whose side are you on? >> i'm on the side, the qe way outpaced the economy. main street has been left out. stuart: thank you very much, scott shellady. check the big board, here we go, off and running and strong news on the economy and the market has opened lower, pointing to a loss of 30, maybe 40 points when we're fully off and running. now, this, it's the world's largest mobile market. china, 700 million potential subscribers and now apple inked a d
the transition to a new economy, where the federal reserve is not playing that much of a role, can happen. that's what bernanke told us what could happen. it would be amazing as a swan song if it does happen >>> speaking of the fed, front page of the business sentence, the first sentence of ben apple balm's fed piece. federal reserve officials are in no hurry to retreat. >> we're in a weird moment here. when i looked at the pan aklee of knees, not a lot of bad. not a lot of land mines. >> we had this conversation and promptly went down for a few days. >> true but the difference might be that the news flow is very positive this morning. it is indicative of the year. sisco buys a company, u.s. air. no one is thinking they will do that. here is a stock that's been stuck at 33. >> the other one is stuck, period. >> then, we have gilead and this is like apple with china mobile. this is the moment in time that people think, that's new. they create reasons to buy stocks. i was on the phone with somebody who was very big in p.c.s. this has really accelerated. >> p.c.s? >> yes. that's the reasoning behi

't have employer exuberance. we have a couple of numbers to see for the rest of the economy. no, i'm waiting until the afternoon, we've seen a noon swoon the last five, six days in a row. if you want to buy going into the weekend, i'd say wait because we'll have a selloff mid day. stuart: there's a prediction. scott, you're killing me here. >> on a macro labor we'll wait on this taper talk, and there will be automatic selling when you hear the 10-year high. stuart: those are the 30 stocks that make up the dow jones industrial average, every single one in the green and that means they're all up this morning. right now, the overall, the dow is up 86 points, but again, we expect it to move higher than that. we've had some sky high predictions for apple stock this week. one guest said 700, another said, a thousand bucks a share. i can see that it's open $3 lower on otherwise up market today. but here is john layfield, fresh from the beach. apple, i know you follow it very closely, are you buying those sky high predictions? >> no, i'm not. i would buy the $700 prediction, i just don't t

economy works for every working american. that's why i ran for president. the basic bargain at the heart of our economy. this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country. a child may never be able to escape poverty, because she lacks a decent education or health care. that should offend all of us. what drives me is a grandson, a son, a father, an american, is to make sure that every striving, hard-working, optimistic kid has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. dr. king once said, of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking. not anymore. if you still don't like obama care, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >>> here at 30 rock, we are counting down to tonight's lighting of the famous rockefeller christmas tree. that war on christmas, a lot of hum bug, of course. but as president obama prepares to join in the national tree-lighting on friday, he's got a few other things to attend to. first, including a long list of policy goals that he wants to achieve for the american
to their own god-given potential. it is because we know that when women and girls participate in economies, economic growth is greater than it would be without them. where women and girls are given a chance to be educated and to get the health care that they deserve to have, we know that society benefits. where women and girls can participate in peacemaking and peace building as full members of society in trying to resolve conflicts, we know that resolution is more likely to be sustained. it is a great honor for me to have this award, but it is just a reminder of how much more we have yet ahead of us to accomplish. we have to make sure that tom's dreams, tom's life, the examples of the award recipients with us and those unable to come like the dalai lama and elie wiesel bring out each of us our own commitments to what we will do to further the cause of human rights, universal human rights, for every man, woman, boy and girl in the world. it is what tom would expect us to do to hold high his ideals. by accepting this award and by accepting this award and knowing that tom would not let me of

economy but with the confusion that has occurred but certainly where bobby did agree in the end they were going too far. >> don't forget before kennedy assassination as site jordan rapprochements but you could elaborate but it as part of kennedy is he would make an arrangement with castro. >> he did at that point and that comes with it. >> i would like to talk about this relationship of the difference between john kennedy and bobby kennedy. in the event he felt he was more close to bobby kennedy and jack kennedy. he was tough to get close to but he said john kennedy was a realist. robert kennedy at the heart of bobby kennedy he felt the problems of the issues of the country. john kennedy figured out if his mind. >> don't you seek bobby was much more because of what he had dead throat? like the assassination? >> john kennedy had the katy one '09 experience. >> but i take his life to take koldewey remember watching bobby and i was on the trail and the fall of the politicians know one changed as much as he did in my judgment. in the end he could still we the tough guy with all of those out t
. is it because the sanctions were biting deeply into the economy or from a political perspective the ar art you are genuine in sg a new chapter. >> in iran we have political elections an an popular and popr elections. >> they chose a different path this time around. and that election provided a historic opportunity to us and to the west in order to atry tro address us. you. we are not talking about sanctions. when sanctions started iran had less than 200 centrifuges and the note product has been 1880 centrifuges that has been added to iran's stock of centrifuges so sanctions have utterly failed in that regard. it seems to me that the west is trying to take advantage of the historic opportunity. we have a new government and a different approach to foreign policy. our tenants of foreign policy have not changed we insist on our rice rite an rights and we t negotiate. this can be achieved best through construction gea negotiation. >> first of all, what has happened, nick, since this deal was made and are there signs of how this is going to work? >> yeah, john, i think their initial reaction is tent
republicans out to be very bad for the economy. > the jobs number today, the president said a couple of days ago at the economic speech in seeing new 're not policy initiatives by the white house. everyone comfortable with the ecrease in unemployment as it has been or holding it down sooner or faster or a greater pace. what are they doing to achieve that? >> i appreciate the question. like what the president said the other day, we need to invest in the infrastructure. the republicans used to support that with democrats. we needed to get that done. we need to when the president put forward an idea, you know, is also that and lowering the corporate tax rate loopholes in a way that would be a better bargain for jobs in this country. to invest in universal prek. e need to continue to do the things that the president has jobs to rd to attract america from overseas and to n ing home jobs from america companies that are located overseas, bring them home to build on those trends. we need to continue to build on the trends, the positive trends we've seen in the manufacturing sector in this country. e
difficult to forecast when it will be, in part because the economy is starting to behave more strongly and as a result that extends the time in which the treasury department can do things. they call them extraordinary measures, to prevent hungers from having to raise the debt ceiling. at some point in time congress will have to do that. the earliest is february, but much more likely that it is sometime close to the spring or even the beginning of the summer . then you will get the same debate over what to cut, whether we should look at tax hikes or entitlements. it is hard to see how they are going to get any kind of agreement on those areas, or to give only in an election year. host: turning away from the budget, the house is expected to adjourn on friday, and the senate shortly thereafter. a lot of high-profile legislation hanging in the balance. tell us about what is likely to make it to before the end of the 113th congress? that ishe only thing completely likely to get through it is a new defense authorization act. there will be a lot of interesting debates to watch on that to see
. and in an economy that is not creating enough work for people who want to go to work and still not creating enough middle class jobs. >> reporter: the president is paying attention to the issue, calling for a raise in the federal minimum wage. >> it's well past the time to raise a minimum wage that in real terms right now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. >> reporter: in this push for a higher minimum wage, a higher federal minimum wage likely to not go away anytime soon. the bureau of labor statistics shows six out of ten fastest growing positions in the next decade will be low paying positions. >> a lot of folks are struggling. that's for sure. we'll be watching these protests across the nation. >>> in other headlines, vice president joe biden says china's new air defense zone over the east china sea is causing significant apprehension. he's in beijing meeting with the country's top leaders. biden says he expressed washington's firm position and expectations regarding the zone. the air space is over a disputed island chain claimed by both china and japan. biden will be headi
. every american worker wants a raise. but we're at a point in our economy with income inequality in america. there's a lot of folks out there that flat out need a raise to lift them out of the poverty zone. you know, people in this country right now are not in the library. they're out in the street. and the national fast food strike that unfolded this week in 130 cities across the country, i think, is a message to our congress, you better wake up. the people are way ahead of you on this. fast food workers, what they did, is that they staged -- they staged a massive protest on thursday, calling for a liveable wage. thousands of protests, and roughly 130 cities around the country went on strike to protest the minimum wage, which stands at $7.25 an hour in this country. you know, folks, this is the largest wave of protests in the history of the fast food industry. workers, basically, are fed up. their demands are very simple. he they want to live a decent life while working hard a full-time job. but many are part time that don't qualify for benefits. many of them are just asking for

[applause] >> well, welcome, and thank you for that nice welcoming applause. and i want to thank you all for joining us for what i know is going to be a very special evening. as many of you know this year, vanderbilt welcomed john meacham with, i would say, wide arms and a very warm embrace as a distinguished visiting professor. [applause] and i think john has done well, and i hope we can take the visiting off pretty soon. [laughter] i would say that our political science students are just thrilled to have such a unique opportunity to learn from this accomplished historical scholar and celebrated to have. john's most recent book,
the commandment thou shalt not kill he talks about that in relationship of an economy of seclusion and equality that kills. that's the pope's words not my own. i think the pope realizes there's been some distorted messages sent out in terms of the whole gospel of life, the consistent ethic of life and i think he is trying to rebalance that conversation in a powerful way and i think he's been successful on that. >> katherine on twitter says, the pope has a new attitude but not new doctrine. giselle says, let women become catholic priests. and then shift away from hot button topics, the media still guys these ah as quote unquote issues. sister janine, the pope has told the priests to be more quote unquote welcoming. do you see changes happening in your future? >> the change has to come at the local level. the pope has said, we should stop obsessing about gay marriage. now what that would translate in our culture in the united states is that our united states bishops need to kind of tone down their rhetoric, many and their opposition -- and their opposition to same-sex marriage and instead if they
and the violence focused the word on the racism. boycotts choked off the economy, mandela became the most famous prisoner in the word. the off international condemnation and growing domestic unrest chipped away at apartheid until finally mandela was released from prison. it was february 11th, 1990, the streets flowed with joy. and the man who had become a powerful symbol of resistence, walked free. >> vowing never to go back to what he called the black held of apartheid. >> i have spoken about freedom in my lifetime. your discipline, your commitment, has lift me to stand before you today. but freedom wasn't easy, to reform the government has to play peace keeper trying to temper escalading violence between his party and supporters of the freedom party who wanted no part of negotiations with the government that had helped them down for so down. thousands were killed. also his marriage to winny mandela, a powerful political force herself was crumbling. the woman who supported him so publicly, was accused of having affairs and some of the murder rouse violence. they finally divorced. through it all

a time when this wasn't a big problem and we were in an economy where you could make it into the middle class. and some educators say that the passport to middle class used to be the high school diploma. but not anymore. there is a new economy and a new passport to middle class is education beyond high school. and girls seem to be getting at amboise lesson lasts. so i feel that that problem -- i cannot find major organizations or government groups and the department of education is still talking about the shortchange of this because they were deeply influenced by the early research that said the girls weren't shortchanged. so they haven't adjusted to the times. we have the white house counsel, women and girls, concerned about the education of girls so girls don't fall behind. and when it's boys, it's like they are significantly behind girls. so i think we need this as well. >> host: you write that women in the u.s. now earn 62% of the associate degrees and 57% of bachelors degrees and 60% of masters degrees and 52% of doctorates, college admissions officers, they were first baffled and
